This school is amazing. I wouldn't consider private school with my K-6 experience. Teachers and leadership are awesome, and I can't say enough about the front office staff.
Our experience with both the Admin and Principal at Marion has been fantastic. We've had a few issues that were resolved quickly and professionally. Mrs. Walker is very responsive and has proved to our children that the system does work. The PTA is involved and just helped raise $ for a new playground. the Watchdog program is very strong as well and there are at least two fathers volunteering at the school almost everyday. Our kids enjoy learning and we can't be happier!
Administrative staff should not be working with young children. They are unprofessional and do not respect children or parents. We have tried talking to them about our concerns and nothing gets resolved. Would not recommend this school due to the admin staff. We will be moving just so our child can go to a different school.
Our sons teacher is great this year, first one ever. The principal has to be one of the worst I have ever had to talk too. Stay clear of this school if you can.
Worst school ever stay clear. The admin staff is probably the worst we have ever had to deal with. Very unresponsive, stay away if you can.
There is absolutely no reason this school deserves a "10" rating. The previous review is spot on. We are in our second year here and my daughter HATES it. They have a lot of "policies" on paper that make them look good but when it comes to action, this school is awful. You will not get a warm fuzzy feeling at this school and unless you're a room parent, do not expect to be part of your child's education. I can't wait to be out of this school.
As with most things, there is always room for improvement at Marion, especially when it comes to diversity of the administration and the faculty. There are very few people of color within administration, which is true for all of AISD schools, as well as few teachers of color. Marion and Allen ISD need to diversify by recruiting highly qualified administrators and teachers of color.
I have three kids who have and are attending Marion Elementary. I wouldn't want to go anywhere else! The school is very clean, the teachers and staff are awesome and the school is part of the community on many levels. Go Mavericks!
I feel the same, my child loves Marion. The principals, administrative staff, teachers and other staff members are all great leaders for our children. The after school program rocks too. Thanks Marion!
I can't say enough good things about this school, my children are so happy here. We have loved all our teachers and the principal is so sweet.
Great School and neighborhood. Supportive teachers and administrators.
I love Marion Elementary. The teachers are top notch. Very involved, hands on curriculum, stimulating environment. I am impressed with the principals ability to filter suggestions and make changes.
I have been very happy with Marion Elementary. The teachers really care about their students. The administrative staff is incredible. I could not ask for a better place for my child to start her education.
